Please , tell me of one country that socialism / communism has been successful and positive for the people for more then a generation , and that time frame is more then generous .
I'm sorry , I can't hear you .
I thought so , they are all on the ash heap of history .
Subject: Complete ignorant nonsense
This is a testament of the New Left. With the fall of Communisim, they have to reinvent themselves. Hugo Chavez has been an economic disaster for Venezuela. The socialism advocated here leaves no room for dissent. They have ALL the answers. The problem with these Nuevo Socialistas is that they've never had money, never will and have no idea what to do with it when they get it. Capitalism is as only good as the humans who use it. Socialism had destroyed 100,000,000 people in the last 100 years. It is foolish to have economic systems that remove competition in the work place. Socialism = extreme medioctrity.
This video is so monumentally stupid no more words are required.
Subject: Class Wars
The audio is out of synch on the MPEG1.
While I haven't thought a lot of Hugo Chaves in the past, what really strikes fear in the US leadership is the prospect of class wars spreading here. With growing income disparity, outsourcing, media consolidation and the like, America's love affair with the "industrious entrepreneur" is coming to an end and being replaced with disgust for corporate greed and exploitation.
I was told to go back to school, to adopt to the marketplace. I did just that, got a degree in software development. There was a strong demand for that when I started. By the time I graduated, those jobs were being outsourced to India. I retained the tech support job I had at the college, but those have long been outsourced in the private sector. There are jobs being created, mainly low-paying restaurant, health care and retail positions.
Our rights and liberties are being trampled by an autocratic leadership with the full complicity of our legislators and courts. All for "security" and the "War on Terror". I joined the ACLU, the only serious defender of the Constution in these times.
America's "Bolivarianization" is due. I did not join the WTO protests in Seattle in '99, even though it's my back yard. I still bought in to the promises of globalization. Times have changed. More of these are due, how soon I do not know. We may even find our own Chavez, hopefully a mild-mannered version.

Subject: The best doc that I have seen
I caught this at a recent film festival and it stole the show!!
A documentary that covers the events realistically and in detail, problem - solution result.
A film that is truly empowering and worth every second of viewing.
